Oneida upsets South Greene to advance in region tournament

GREENEVILLE, Tenn.  |  Defense set the tone early. Then, late in the game, when South Greene threatened, a couple of 3-point shots by senior provided the dagger. In the end, Oneida escaped south Greene County with a 48-42 upset in Friday's Region 1-2A quarterfinal round, keeping its season alive.

The Lady Indians created 22 turnovers, and kept South Greene's offense off-balance all night. In fact, the Rebels scored only 15 first half points as Oneida jumped out to an early lead and never trailed after that point.

Oneida's pesky defense, a mix of press and a half-court zone, created 10 turnovers in the first quarter alone to set the tone for the game.

The lead eventually grew to as much as 10 points late in the third quarter, 34-24. At that point, South Greene looked like it might be on the verge of defeat on its home court — a place the Rebels had not lost a game all season.

But then came the fourth quarter, and a sort of turning of the tide. The Rebels had hit a 3-point shot to end the third quarter, then got an offensive putback to start the fourth quarter, cutting Oneida's lead to five.

The lead was eventually trimmed to one point, and that's when Terry found her spot in the left corner.

“That's her spot,” coach Marv West said after the game. “I watch her every day in practice.”

Terry's 3-point shot gave Oneida a four-point lead. It would not last for long, as South Greene buried a 3-ball on the opposite end to cut it back to one. But Terry wasn't finished.

“When she hit the first one, she wanted the ball again,” West said.

Terry's second 3-pointer was a dagger from which South Greene would not recover.
